This came looks very polished and clean. Having never played the 360 version I have no basis for comparison, but I have played this game non stop since I got it. Split screen coop multiplayer.
Example: I played the pearl harbor level. We started off in our hangers it took us longer to start our engines since they weren't warmed up. We had to take off from a runway with wreckage of planes in our way (Nice touch). Then fight off a huge force of Zero's and bombers. The atmosphere and graphics made me feel the threat of being in a real dogfight.
The planes handle very differently which is great since my buddies enjoy different handling than I do. So we ended up developing our own style of play. Single player has innovative levels (Like flying through a sandstorm to take recon pictures of german basis using only your radio signal to track them down, while taking anti aircraft fire.) I only gave it an 9 because I haven't gotten used to the motion sensitive controls yet. Very hard to use but I'm sure I'll get used to it and probably prefer it later.

All in all this game isn't too bad. It looks nice and the missions are difficult enough to keep you busy. Flying by tilting the controller was actually more fun and natural than I thought it would be. The only issue I had was during extended acrobatics the SIXAXIS seemed to loose calibration and I found myself steering into the ground no matter how hard I tried to avoid it. After a few nose dives I learned how to fix this problem. When your steering seems to go hay-wire you can pull yourself out of the dive with the thumb sticks. Once you've leveled out (your plane and the controller) the SIXAXIS will recalibrate itself and you'll be set to head back into the dog fight. Happy flying!

This game is a good game for the ps3. Especially for the first generation of the system. The game has good graphics, great and speedy animation. The game play is incredible. If you play the game using the motion of the controller, it gets to be a little tricky. If you haven't heard, you can fly the plane just by moving the controller and not pushing any buttons. The portion of the game that you play online is fun too.
